There is one very happy(or shocked) new arrival in Japan right now.
TOKYO (Reuters) – One of the travelers who arrived at Tokyo’s Narita airport over the weekend may have picked up an unusual souvenir from customs — a package of cannabis.
A customs official hid the package in a suitcase belonging to a passenger arriving from Hong Kong as a training exercise for sniffer dogs Sunday, but lost track of both drugs and suitcase during the practice session, a spokeswoman for Tokyo customs said.
Customs regulations specify that a training suitcase be used for such exercises, but the official said he had used passengers’ suitcases for similar purposes in the past, domestic media reported.
“The dogs have always been able to find it before,” NHK quoted him as saying. “I became overconfident that it would work.”
Sure, blame it on the dogs while you’re at it. Who’s the idiot who put it in a bag without noting which suitcase they were using. Did Narita security take lessons from TSA recently? I certainly hope this weed wasn’t put in the bag of a person making a connecting flight. It would be very unfunny if the unsuspecting person was caught with the marijuana, particularly in places like the Middle East, Malaysia, Indonesia, or Singapore.
Otherwise Japan has one very
high happy tourist right now. Wizbang readers may now add their own jokes.
